Momento Nora by Angie Smibert
Genre: Young Adult Fiction
Release Date: July 2011
Publisher: Marshall Cavendish Children's Books
Pages: ?

Summary: Nora, the popular girl and happy consumer, witnesses a horrific bombing on a shopping trip with her mother. In Nora’s near-future world, terrorism is so commonplace that she can pop one little white pill to forget and go on like nothing ever happened. However, when Nora makes her first trip to a Therapeutic Forgetting Clinic, she learns what her mother, a frequent forgetter, has been frequently forgetting. Nora secretly spits out the pill and holds on to her memories. The memory of the bombing as well as her mother’s secret and her budding awareness of the world outside her little clique make it increasingly difficult for Nora to cope. She turns to two new friends, each with their own reasons to remember, and together they share their experiences with their classmates through an underground comic. They soon learn, though, they can’t get away with remembering.

My Thoughts: Momento Nora sounds like a thrilling, futuristic novel I can't wait to get my hands on! The whole concept of swallowing a pill to forget witnessing events that could possibly be a cover up, is genius. Nora sounds like a strong and brave character, I look forward to losing myself in this story. And, by the way the cover is gorgeous! I love the chic look Nora is sporting and the background city view sets the mystery well.
